In comparing programming languages, a useful and frequent exercise is to
challenge one to write in language B an example currently appreciated in
language A. By comparing these, we learn something about the relative
expressiveness issues of these languages.
In this spirit, I'll pose the same challenge I posed to Chris Skalka: Please
write the MintMaker from the Ode
in terms of your proposal. Feel free to invent a non-rigorous pseudo-code
I'd love a similar (and similarly small) challenge in the other direction.
